With Monday’s off-day the Rockies are hoping they don’t lose any momentum they picked up in Washington before flying into Boston. The team won their last two against the Nationals and are set to play two against the Red Sox at Fenway. With some disappointment from the Rockies faithful fans, Walt Weiss didn’t opt to skip Nicasio’s spot in the rotation with the off-day and give the ball to Oswalt and Chatwood for the short series. Sadly, the weakest link in the rotation will be put to the test against the AL East’s top team. The one bright spot is the team will face Ryan Dempster, who has lost his last three outings.
The two games in Boston will wrap-up the teams 10 game road trip that saw them get swept in Toronto and split a 4-game series in Washington. The Rockies haven’t been to Fenway since the World Series in 2007.
The lineup will feature Corey Dickerson hitting DH. Dickerson, the Rockies rookie that was called up for the National’s series, went 2-4 with two-doubles in his debut.
